Many people have reached out asking how they can help after my brother-in-laws death last month. Your thoughtfulness and concern has been deeply felt and appreciated in the aftermath of this tragedy. Nancy and Dan have given so much to the people in their lives over the years - it was part of who they are as people. We don't want that to end.
The outpouring of public and private stories about Dan's generosity and selflessness have uplifted all our spirits while we remain grief-stricken over this terrible loss. To move forward, we need to keep that spirit of helping others, everyday in ways big and small, alive now that he's gone.
The Dan Culhane Memorial Fund and his Celebration of Life event (sometime later this year) will honor the man we loved and will create funding to support one or more organizations that Dan loved such as youth hockey programs, internships or scholarships for young people interested in careers in broadcasting, support for families with multiple myeloma, and animal rescue programs.
Please read more about Dan's memorial fund on this page we've created danculhanememorialfund.org which is also linked in the navigation at the top of this blog. We will be adding more information to this page in the days ahead to acknowledge the financial contributions and provide information about specific organizations and programs the fund will be supporting.
We especially wanted to let those who have generously sent memorial gifts already to Nancy know that your act of kindness will be added to Dan Culhane Memorial Fund.
